Let's see when these are available in Finland / Nordic countries.

The price in here will probably be something like 74,99 € or something ludicrous.

If the price would be closer to 30 € I would buy the black one in a heartbeat.

None of those appeal to me yet. But I am glad Sony is finally doing it!

I want to see some cool artwork ones. Not just matte plastic.

They are too expensive, but they look good and it's nice to see they are releasing them in multiple colors. Let's hope that in the future they add more colors for plates and pads, and that also allow you to buy the console specifying the pad and plates color, so you don't have to pay the extra to customize it.

Making all consoles white, and charging $55 to change the color, is so devious that I can't help but respect the hustle.

Can't wait for a sale on thee black ones though. Or should I go with the red? Decisions, decisions . . . .

I would have maybe bought this from a 3rd party for $20 tops, but for $55 I'm definitely skipping it entirely and not giving it another thought.

Not at all. I hate seeing people rry to capitalize on other people's work. The PS5 is Sony's. Many millions were put into it. You shouldn't just get to jump in and say, "give me a piece of that" without even consulting the creator.

Probably going for red when the price is down somewhat. I'm in no rush to change, black and white is perfectly fine as is.

So thats why Sony was willing to sue any companies that were making custom covers based on the PS5 cover.
Dbrand thought they were clever and could fight it....Sony already knew they were making their own product so could attack Dbrand

Get fucked Dbrand you mess with the bull you get the horns.

Though I admit I actually really like the Darkplate 2 design without the "horns"?


Can I still get those?

If I get the black covers, then i’d have to buy black controllers. No way in hell am I running a black PS5 with white controllers.

$55 + $90 = $145 to change colours. Maybe the white isn’t so bad.
If you get a Black console the controller included is Black.
Same for the Purple console... the controller included is Purple.

But of course if you already have white console and white controller you need to buy cover for both separetally.

This is the ugliest thing I've ever seen. And I am not talking about xbox here.
The white original design gives the console some elegance

I kinda want that pink one, or the red one like my controller.

Never fucking mind... Jesus. $55 for a bit of plastic?
Apple sells a small piece of silicone for $50.



Its a luxury fashion product. Phone case or console cover, same thing. Its not about functional value. Its a purely unnecessary cosmetic. Hence why the value and price is so subjective and detached from any build cost. No idea why anyone ever thought these would be like $20 or something. Demand is much higher than that.

Yep. And if demand is too low then the price will drop. This is how supply/demand works.

And a shitty stand for $999, fuck Apple.

I think the point here is that overpriced consumer electronics accessories, regardless of the company, are very common.

Two pieces of colored plastic cost about as much as an entire game?

Well played, Sony lol

I'm trying to figure out if production has gone up 6X or if they just split the current out put 6 ways 🤔

I'm hoping in it's the former. Imagine waiting nearly a year for a white PS5, getting to the store and they only have a pink one :messenger_grinning_sweat:

And just like phone cases, you can get knockoffs or 3rd party versions for much cheaper. All this complaining and the black color will still probably sell out.

These aren’t for consoles though. Just the replacement plates and controllers for now.

You can get them in white or even PS1 grey if you want.
And I agree, they look really good in white.
The tuskless covers are honestly so cool....if only they didnt put the damn vents on it.
Hopefully the Darkplate 2.1 wont have a vent.

Yes. I expected $5. :messenger_dizzy:

Dual sense. $70
Replacement Side Plates $55

Do you really not see the issue here?

I'm sorry, no I don't see the issue at all. The controller was never going to be $20. Plus, you don't NEED to buy new controllers to match the console.

Im referring to the price of a dual sense which has far more technology involved vs two pieces of molded plastic.

Never said the controller would be $20. I am not sure what you are referring to.
